Tying a slideshow and a map together?

I have some geographically-tied data, and I'd like to be able to do a slideshow (text and/or images) with a map that highlights the current slide's location along side it.

Effective ways of editting Google Map

I've created a bit of a mongrel cycle map http://bit.ly/9uCqn7 . It's based on two FOI requests on cycle collisions, in January it started pulling in potholes. However now I want to tidy it up and do a separate pothole map and cycle collision map.

Does anyone know how to pull the potholes out of the map? I tried downloading and editting the KML but simply removing the code stops displaying all the other pinpoints like this http://bit.ly/bkUVxU .

I suspect I'm approaching this the wrong way so any other suggestions for edditing the map with would be really helpful.
